Fresh from a busy time at Leopardstown, BetVictor ambassador Rachael Blackmore has four rides at Punchestown on the final day of what has been an amazing 2021 for the Grand National winning jockey.

Cobblers Way

Punchestown 11:45

I get started at Punchestown with Cobblers Way in the Beginner’s Chase; we haven’t seen him since he pulled up in the Albert Bartlett at the 2020 Festival. He has been going well at home ahead of his chase debut, he was second in a point-to-point back in 2018 and seems to be jumping well ahead of this. He had a fair level of form over hurdles ending up being rated 146, hopefully, he can make a good start to chasing here after the layoff.

Sovereign Gold

Punchestown 12:15

Then its onto Sovereign Gold in the two-mile seven handicap chase, she drops slightly in trip here from the run here the last day where she was sixth. The more rain that falls the better her chances will be, she is going well at home and should be competitive here.

Max Mayhem

Punchestown 12:45

9/1

Next up is the three-year-old hurdle where I ride Max Mayhem for Joseph in the Robcour colours. He had his first start over hurdles in a warm grade three at Fairyhouse won by Fil Dor, he will have come on a lot from that experience, and we hope to see an improved performance from him here.

Le Correzien

Punchestown 13:55

9/1

My final ride of 2021 comes on Le Correzien in the handicap hurdle over two mile three. He finished last of seven on his first start for Henry here at Punchestown back in November. He was entitled to have needed that having not been on the track for over a year, he is a nice horse, and we are hopefully of seeing some improvement here with the benefit of that run last month.

Finally, I just wanted to take the chance to wish everyone a safe and Happy New Year, 2021 provided me with several very special moments fingers crossed 2022 can give me many more!
